TPS Seniors 2018

Brent Schuliger

Meet Brent Schuliger!

Brent Douglas Schuliger was born in Dayton, Ohio, to John and Megan Schuliger. John was an officer in the military, and so various assignments would propel his family into a nomadic lifestyle, staying no more than three years in any one place. As a young toddler, Brent moved to the pacific island of Guam. He doesn’t remember much of the exotic locale except that he couldn’t stand the heat and humidity. After two years, he moved on to the much more temperate Hawaiian island of Oahu, where he enjoyed three years of good food and sunlight. He got quite a shock when he was suddenly transported to this odd place called Kansas. Kansas was an peculiar creature. It wasn’t really anywhere, and it had a new season that introduced itself to Brent: winter. Suddenly the ground was covered in this cold white stuff which was left you wet and shivering. Brent got even more snow when he moved to Washington, D.C. a year later. He underwent three more blisteringly cold Virginia winters and there discovered his love for music. After three years in D.C., he moved to O’Fallon, Illinois. You might ask yourself, ‘Where is O’Fallon, Illinois?’ and you’d be right. The funny thing about nowhere is it gets boring quicker than you can say ‘endless corn fields’, so the move back to Hawai’i was welcome. He spent three more glorious years with some of his best friends, and he first started taking classes at TPS his eighth grade year. Shout-out to Physical Science with the best science teacher ever, Mrs. Selby! Since then, he’s enjoyed many good classes and classmates, but none will match the legendary heights Pre-AP Honors Chemistry Section 2 achieved (Mrs. Selby was again the best ever to put up with KoE and the Covalent Octopi Fan Club). Afterwards he moved to San Antonio, Texas, where he lived for ten months. Mrs. Wood, best English teacher ever, gets a mention here for explaining which numbers should be spelled out. He now lives in Niceville, Florida, and it really is nice there. He passes the time playing varsity basketball for Rocky Bayou Christian School, weightlifting, and leading his youth group in worship. He’ll be attending Liberty University this fall.

 

Favorite Bible verse:

Psalm 13:15-16. It reassures me that no matter what I’m going through, I always have God to draw strength from.

 

Advice to the younglings of TPS:

For those of you taking any English class: you might think the poetry is boring. It’s not. I thought the same thing until I was introduced to T.S. Eliot. “The Waste Land” changed the world, and it’s pretty cool. Stick with the poetry.

  3. KOE IT’S YOU. I’ll always remember our super awkward meeting in HI, it’s kinda a highlight of my TPS adventure just because it was so funny. I can hear my mom now, “Move together, you don’t want three feet between you in this picture, it just looks so stiff” XD

    Also. Best advice ever.

  4. Congratulations Brent!!! I’m so glad you’re in a warm place again. 😉
